Indians Closing In to Border – Gavaskar Trophy, As 14 Wickets Fell on Day 3


The way Indian team played is really appreciable. The Team stood together and set a tough strategy against Kangaroos. Indian Team sent them back to dressing room, allowing them to score only 137 runs.

The team has done a tremendous work and give Kangaroos answer through their bat and ball. On being sledged by Kangaroos team did not affected at all but Indian team’s bat and ball answered them.

The new ball and fierce bowling of  Umesh Yadav and Bhuvneshwar Kumar sent back Smith, David Warner, and Matt Renshaw. Not only these 2 bowlers but Sir Jadeja and Ashwin also took wickets of Kangaroos.

Sir Jadeja not only took 3 crucial wickets but he has scored wonderful 63 runs as well and swayed is bat like swords on completing his half century in his signature style. He negotiated with bouncers very early in the inning, and when tested again by Cummins sent him across the boundary line. It was very crucial and disciplined knock from Jadeja which helped India to keep the nose ahead of Aussies.

In between of the game, there were some light moments as well like Murali Vijay, who has taken the catch of  Hazelwood, he rushed to the dressing room to wear his pads without checking whether he is really out or not.
